Growing Mister Car Wash Committed to Giving Back
After giving away a record-setting amount in 2017, Mister Car Wash is predicting 2018 will be an even bigger year for charitable giving. Through its Inspiring Futures program, Mister Car Wash focuses on investing in communities by awarding grants to local schools and giving generously through its sponsorship, donation, and fundraising programs. In addition, Mister supports its employees who are passionate about improving their knowledge and furthering their education by awarding tuition scholarships annually.
According to Ciera Lopez, Community Relations Specialist, Mister Car Wash gave away just shy of $900,000 in sponsorships, scholarships, donations and grants in 2017. She expects charitable gifts will exceed one million dollars in 2018. Why so generous?
“Giving back is fundamental to our company culture. It’s one of the important ways we express our gratitude for the continued support we receive from the community. As our company continues to grow, so will our gifts to the communities we serve,” Lopez said.
Non-profit organizations that registered for Mister Car Wash’s fundraising program in 2017 raised over $620,725 to support their school, booster club, or athletic team.
“Our fundraising program helps all kinds of organizations, from high school bands to little league teams, raise funds for needs like uniforms and travel,” Lopez explained. “Any charitable organization that inquires through our website can sell Mister Car Wash passes, earning half of the proceeds for their organization.”
Mister Car Wash also donates generously in response to requests from local charities. In 2017, for example, it donated $114,000 in wash passes and sponsorships. In addition, the company granted a total of $32,000 to deserving teachers for their classroom through its annual Teacher Appreciation program.
“We have a simple formula at Mister Car Wash. We work hard, we have fun, we take care of our people and we support the communities that support us,” Lopez said.
On top of its charitable giving efforts, Mister Car Wash offers programs that assist its own employees and their families. For example, in 2017 the company granted $25,000 in tuition scholarships and donated 2,500 school supply kits.
For Mister Car Wash, it’s not just about delivering a clean, dry, shiny car fast; it’s also about inspiring people to shine along the way. For information, visit www.mistercarwash.com.
